Trials changed greatly during the pandemic - with courts adopting virtual technologies to keep trials moving despite the challenges posed by COVID-19. NLR readers turned to IMS Consulting & Expert Services for insights into how the legal industry adapted during the pandemic, including jurors’ willingness to serve during COVID-19, and whether virtual trials are here to stay after the pandemic is over. 

The National Law Review recognizes IMS Consulting & Expert Services for their extensive analysis and research into the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on insurance coverage and on the insurance industry as a whole.  The IMS team and various industry experts through videos, podcasts and thought leadership addressed topics ranging from: jurors' views on insurance policy interpretation during the pandemic; civil authority and reinsurance, what’s considered an occurrence in the context of COVID-19;  to how other catastrophic events interplay with Coronavirus in the insurance industry. The breadth of COVID-19 issues addressed along with the regularity of IMS Consulting & Expert Services’ contributions provide NLR readers with unparalleled analysis of the pandemic’s impact on the insurance industry.

IMS Consulting & Expert Services has been selected for a 2018 NLR Go-To Thought Leadership Award for their analysis of high-impact patent litigation.
